    Someone recently asked me what review I enjoyed writing the most, and, well, this is it I have a massive problem with this book It s one I m a little embarrassed to admit The problem is not with the writing or the characters that Stevenson has created it s not even with the plot The problem resides with Kermit the Frog Stay with me here I grew up watching the muppets I became slightly obsessed with them I kind of wanted to join them So, whenever I read about Captain Smollett and Long

    YO HO HO AND A BOTTLE OF RUM This is the iconic novel about pirates that it stands as the best example in this topic and easily one of the most adapted to other media novels in any genre.I can remember having watched several adaptations, live action films, animated movies, even an animated film using animals as the characters, there is the Muppets one, a Japanese anime TV series, an European mini series taking the story to outer space starring Anthony Quinn, the animated remake of that versio

    Remember when pirates briefly became ironically cool, and all of your annoying friends were joining facebook groups for International Talk Like A Pirate Day And the first Pirates of the Carribbean movie came out and was surprisingly awesome And then the second Pirates of the Carribbean movie came out and was decidedly less awesome, but you didn t really realize it until the third one came out and you discovered you couldn t remember and didn t care about number two s cliffhanger ending it was

    Three items worthy of note in Stevenson s classic treasure, Treasure Island 1 There are a ton of tropes We understand that this is pretty much what Disney s Pirates of the Caribbean ripped off, making tons of money off of this adventurous classic, including but not limited to rampant alcoholism a code of honor castaways at sea or in land shipwrecks new and ancient treason group and individual double crosses mutiny, hostages, captures and shocking escapes strangers appearing

    Treasure Island was a swash buckling adventure where the stakes were high and the Gentlemen of Fortune weren t so gentle when seeking their fortune I absolutely loved this book Having never read it before, I picked it up because it looked to be a quick read, and I had books on route to my house and not much time before they got here, I thought I d get another quick read off my list of classics Immediately upon reading I wanted to get on a boat and search for buried treasure, but settled for p
